The summer’s biggest international tournament is coming to England next summer and Rotherham will be right at the heart of all the action!
Having been selected as one of eight host cities, the AESSEAL New York Stadium will see three group stage games and one quarter final at the UEFA Women’s Euros 2022, with excitement building for an unforgettable summer of sport in our town.
Footballing powerhouses France and Italy will lock horns at AESSEAL New York Stadium on 10th July 2022, with Les Blues taking on Belgium at our home four days later, before Group D is wrapped up with a tie between Iceland and France. Saturday 23 July will see Rotherham host a Quarter-Final.
Rotherham United Chief Operating Officer Paul Douglas, who is just one of many key staff at the club constantly striving to enhance the supporter experience at AESSEEAL New York Stadium, believes that this will be the biggest sporting event to ever come to Rotherham.
“It is fantastic, I was saying to Val Hoyle [Chairman of RUWFC] that when we built this place, we wanted to host international games, but we only thought really we’d get, perhaps the odd Under 17s or Under 19s match.
“I think the fact that those games were so well received in Rotherham – with a fantastic turnout from the town – is what stood us in good stead for what now is, without a doubt; the biggest international event to ever hit Rotherham.
“We’ve drawn some really exciting football nations, I’m convinced they will bring fantastic support over with them and it’ll be great for Rotherham to host these countries. It means everything.
“I can’t begin to express how excited I am. When we see the ticket sales and people walk down New York Way, wow, it’ll be amazing.”
Tickets are available for games in Rotherham and prices range from £5 to £30. A family of four can attend a game at the New York Stadium for £30.
